I've mentioned this before, but I decorate my house for every holiday and season.  On Tuesday I took down all the St. Patrick's Day decorations and put up my Easter ones. That included my beloved Occasions Tree and this wreath that I made.

The wreath was so easy to make. From start to finish it took me about 90 minutes.

Step 1: Purchase a 10" foam wreath – not the white styrofoam but the green ones. The white ones just fall apart — go ahead, ask me how I know that?! Also purchase a box of straight pins.

Step 2: Cut 6-12"x12" sheets of double-sided designer paper (DSP) into 1/2" strips.  Thanks to my fabulous Carl Cutter I can cut them all at one time! 

Step 3: Use your bone folder and curl the ribbon.

Step 4: Pierce the center of the DSP with the straight pin and pin to the wreath.  Do not fill the back of th wreath as it will be up against a wall or door. 

Step 5: Decorate as desired.

I made a banner for my wreath using the Big Shot Typeset Alphabet dies.

I added a bow with the Whisper White Organza Ribbon and pierced it with a Brights Glimmer Brad.

I created the butterfly using the Beautiful Butterflies die and colored a Large Rhinestone Jewel with a Sharpie marker.

I'm happy with how it turned out and now I have a new addition to my Easter decorations!
